    Boban Marjanovic is a 4 year NBA vet, who is long and skilled. Although he is 31 years old, he is very reliable while on the floor. The downside is he can only play around 15 minutes per game because of his speed and his knees. While on the floor, he is rated as one of the most productive Centers in the NBA. You can guarantee that his limited minutes on the floor will be quality minutes. Thoughts?

    If he was available, he’s likely not anymore.

    The perfect backup C for the Jazz? How about Tony Bradley?

    He is 21 years old, has only played in like 12 meaningful games in the NBA, has huge upside as a rebounder, he is #2 in the nba in offensive rebounds per possession (just behind Penes Kancer), and is super cheap!

    Yes, I agree. His strength and speed improvements over the last couple years has really made him a player. I believe he will continue to improve and he already does some things very well. Needs to foul less. But, you know, with fans, the grass is always greener somewhere else.

    Boban has perfected that little one handed push shot from about 6 to 12 feet.

    He was shooting them over Montrez last night who had no chance defending it - it was almost comical.

    But as mentioned earlier, Powell looks like he's out indefinitely. No way Mavs part with him.

    Props for bringing a new name to the backup C discussion. I would rather stick with Bradley, but if Boban was free I would have liked him (again, not happening now).

    When the Jazz win the championship this year, the top thread will still be some idget trying to cut Tony Bradley for cap space to bring on Noah Vonleh or any other parade of losers.

    Hard to see Mavs letting him go now given how thin their front court is with Powell’s injury last night

    He's a 3rd string center and not an everyday player

    He was a 2nd string C on the Sixers last year who were one game away from making the Finals. He also started a few games when Embiid didn’t play.

    Just because you call him a 3rd string center with conviction doesn’t make it so. The guy could play 12-14 minutes for us and make an impact on both ends.

    Honestly Tony Bradley might be our best option. It's just unfortunate that he's not in like his 4th season insteas of his 1st season (getting meaningful time/experience). In a few years he's gonna be what we are searching for now.

    TB is a better option than Boban. Dallas will actually need some minutes from Boban now.

    I wish we could somehow get him back after this season.

    After their first championship run GSW made minor roster changes like this and generated a 70+ win season. Why stop trying to improve?
